That said, it is possible to involve aliens while remaining true to the
spirit of the Gundam universe. One way might be to have humankind discover
evidence of an alien presence in the solar system a long time ago (sort of
like James P. Hogan's "Inherit the Stars"). As long as the series focused
on humanity's reaction to this discovery (just think what it could do to the
Earthanoid/Spacenoid dynamics!) rather than on the aliens, it could work.
